The speed limit info is a "nice" feature that I can take or leave but the lane departure I think is a good safety feature, especially if you are taking long roadtrips. You can order 494 (heated seats) as a separate item. I am unable to find the option code, and it might be built in to the lane departure warning option but there is a collision warning system too that uses that camera: it watches ahead and when you get too close, or when the rate of closure is too fast, it will visually and audibly alert you (it doesn't put on the brakes like other manufacturers but something is better than nothing). Finally, one last thing that camera does is if you get option 5AC (auto high beams), it watches for oncoming traffic and moves the high beams accordingly to keep from blinding people in front of you. The camera is not used for the top view; it is for the computer to use only.

Hope that answers your questions.
My friend just bought 2013 x28i today and it has heated steering wheel and lane departure system (i.e. it vibrates the steering) and the forward collision warning system - so you info is not true unless I missed your point here
